In a major announcement, budget carrier SpiceJet has introduced a new service under which customers will be able to book the COVID-19 RT-PCR test using the appointment booking service offered by VFS Global. The COVID-19 RT-PCR test is commonly referred to as the confirmatory test for COVID-19. 

The move is in the wake of a mandatory COVID-19 negative test report for passengers, especially for international travel. 

This has led to “apprehensions” among travellers regarding the entire process of complying with various pre-travel requirements, the company said in its media release.  

The facility is available for customer in India and UAE. The test could be conducted from the homes, it said.
